Double tragedy for Dennis

Actor Dennis Quaid and his wife Kimberly have reached a massive $1.3million settlement over the medical incident involving their one-year-old twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace. The accident occurred at the Cedars-Sinai oedical Centre in LA when they administered a life-threatening amount of the blood thinning medication Heparin to the two-week-old babies. Dennis said in oay that the twins had nearly died but recovered within a week, although the long-term effects remain unknown. The hospital apologised at the time of the error. Dennis and Kimberley Quaid did not sue Cedars-Sinai but named the hospital as a “potential defendant” in a lawsuit they brought against the maker of Heparin.
